6. Daramad of Dastgah-e Homayun
Voice with tar
The exposition of the daramud resumes with a vocal setting of the main poem by Sa'di:
Dust midaram man in nalidan-e delsuz ra
Ta behar tarzi ke bashad bogzaranam ruz ra
Vah keh gar man baz binam chehr-e mihr-afza-ye u
Ta qiyamat shukr guyam tale'-ye piruz ra.
I love this lamenting moaning, burning.
Rending the heart: so I'll let it pass
The day, whatever it may.
O, but once again if I could see
Her face that thrills the soul with joy,
I'll thank till Judgement Day
My star's ascendant sway.
